Formed of South Coast talent Leon Vynehall and Christian 'A1 Bassline' Piers, Lazlo Dancehall made quite a splash in UK deep house circles with their debut release Gave Up which found a welcome home on London label Man Make Music. The clear understanding Piers has of hooky vocals and melodic touches were a neat fit for Vynehall's crunchy, sample driven rhythms with the results not unlike a UK take on Raw Cuts era MCDE. Together once again on Man Make Music, Lazlo Dancehall are on top form with Whip What, a three track 12" that hits the spot with a wonderfully uplifting title track and continues in this floor ready fashion until the run-out groove arrives deep into the B Side. The 3min30 mark onwards of "Fatty Que" is sublime by the way.
